Poll: Space Princesses!

Well, we're long overdue for another Space: 1970 Poll, so here's the first one of 2013: "Which 70s Space Princess Was The Sexiest?"  You'll find the poll itself over at the top of the right-hand sidebar here on the blog, and, as usual, feel free to explain your vote in the comments or berate me for failing to include your favorite!

  1. I voted Princess Ardala. She wins by far in my opinion. No one else came close. She just oozed sensuality in every scene she was in. I was actually surprised at times what she wore (or how little she didn't wear) back then. And it wasn't just what she wore - it was how her personality itself was pure sensuality. I don't know how Buck could think straight around her.

  2. Ardala was plenty sexy, but Aura edges her out.

  3. Another vote for Aura. Pure HOTNESS!

  4. I gotta go with Aura. It's the accent that nudges her ahead of Ardala.

  5. I go for Aura too.
    Leia was actually the one I thought the cutest and a hottie- but she was a good girl.
    Ardala and Aura were sexier because they were- OK I'll admit it- trampier, knew it and used it. Aura- especially in that spandex outfit-was just able to turn all men into morons. And get them in death matches with each other over her.

  6. As I contemplate my 'Space Princess' vote*, I wanted to give you notice that the folks at io9 are running their own "best SF/fantasy series ever" poll, which is of interest because a lot of the shows celebrated here are in the running:

    * What makes this so tough is that when I consider the sexiest women from 70s SF, there ain't a princess among them. Between Wilma Deering from BUCK RODGERS and Leela from DOCTOR WHO, who needs a title...?

  7. Well, the sexiness of Leia was deliberately downplayed in SW, whereas Aura and Ardala were designed specifically to convey full-on scantily-clad hotness, using their charms to seduce Flash & Buck etc. :)

  8. As much as I love Princess Leia as a character, my vote for sexiest has to go to Ardala. Sure, Aura was plenty hot, but since Ardala seemed to spend 85% of her screen-time in that space bikini... folks, that's a no-brainer.

  9. Whenever I see a Fiat Abarth commercial on TV, my brain goes to Princess Aura. Now your's will too, but it probably already does.

  10. You, sir, are a horrible person for making me choose between Aura and Ardala. How could you?! Gotta go with Aura, though. I saw the new Oz movie last night, and Aura's "water is leaking from her eyes" line fits in nicely.

  11. No doubts for me: even if Leia is a better character, the sexiest is Aura for sure. Ardala was too massive for me.

    1. I have no idea what you mean by "massive." The slender Pamela Hensley is only 5' 7" tall - I have no idea how anyone could consider her in any way large.

    2. I would also be keen to know what the poster Radar means by Ardala being 'massive'. She was a very slim lady indeed. She got my vote too. She certainly got my blood bubbling as a lad. Lucky lucky Buck, eh? Ardala in a space-bikini on one arm and Wilma in skin-tight spandex on the other

    3. _I_ am 5'7'' tall!! XD I meant I prefer the slimmer silouette of Aura. Despite her size, Ardala (or Pamela Hensley if you prefer) has larger shoulders and stronger chin, making her to appear more "massive" to me. Maybe not the best world, excuse my exotic vocabulary :) For example and staying in the 25th Century, Wilma is more my style, but she doesn't have a title.

    4. Thanks for clearing that up, Radar. I voted for Pamela Hensley - great, great body and quite a mover. BUT, I would also go for Erin Gray if I could. Who wouldn't?

  12. Aura, because she's Italian. 'nuff said ! Grrrr....

  13. Had to go with Aura, although I'm afraid that she's carrying some dreaded Mongo STD.

    1. Just take a couple of Bore Worms and call Dr Zarkov in the morning. Clears right up.

    2. I'm pretty sure that's what General Kala had and she melted into some black goo. :)

  14. Have to say when Ardala gets down and boogies in that horny bikini outfit and lets those hips sway...well Twiki said it best "bidi-bidi-bidi, groovy!"
    More outfits than Queen Amidala and look out when she's mad! Love her smile! Watchout for Tigerman!
    Saw Ms Hensley in Doc Savage, Man of Bronze recently too. Wouldn't that fit under the Space 1970 dome as well (sci-fi elements)?.

  15. Aura, but Ardala a very close second. Ideally, it'd be a tie. Not an easy choice!

  16. Aura was so hot, their is something about her accent when she said lowering flaps lol

  17. Hard to believe I'm the only one to pick the delectable Etsuko Shihomi. Maybe it is because a lot of people haven't seen the film?

    1. That's my case. However, from the pure erotic point of view, I am still with Aura

  18. I suppose Ardala and Aura would just have a.. 'face off'.

    I'll let you all know how that goes.

  19. Tough call but the horned space bikini wins the match! Princess Ardala!

  20. I notice the total votes seems to decrease every time I check the tally, and the gap between Ardala and Aura is narrowing, while Leia's percentage is increasing. Are you in the process of weeding out duplicate votes? With just a 9% gap, Ardala could overtake Aura if duplicate votes are still being sorted out. Will you post the real winner soon?
